Date: Saturday, 1st October 2016,
Kick-Off: 15:00 UK
Venue: Griffin Park.
Brentford will welcome Wigan Athletic to Griffin park on Sunday afternoon as they look to maintain their spot in the playoff spot.
Brentford are currently 5th in the Championship season with 17 points, they are 5 points away from the leaders Huddersfield. They have been on a good form recently, especially at home where they have scored a total of 9 goals in their last 2 games. Their last game was 4-1 win over reading, as Clarke, Vibe, Colin and Hogan all scored for the home team. They now hope to maintain their good home form and stay in the playoff spot.
Wigan are among the pressured teams, they are just above the drop zone with 8 points, same as the teams in 22 and 23 positions. They have managed just 2 games and 2 draws in this campaign and hope to grab a win in this one to escape the danger zone.
